Stop and Take a Moment

I've been totally wrapped up in work and Florida and everything and haven't had a chance to even conceive of a post.  But I came across this picture recently and I absolutely had to share.


Hawkeye the beast laying next to his master, Navy SEAL Jon Tumilson, who was killed when his helicopter was shot down earlier this month.

Read the story here.

Just a reminder to appreciate life, and the ones you love and who love you...furry or otherwise.

  5. I almost cried when I read about this yesterday. So sad, touching, moving, and heartbreaking :( Shows how much our pets really are attached to us and are more than just pets...they're family.

    Sorry I've been MIA with comments lately, I plan to catch up on the week's worth of blog posts I've missed tomorrow! Hope you're doing well :)

  14. Oh man. I cried when I first read this story, then later I cried when I saw a soldier reunited with his family on the news later that day. It's good to have those reminders about how precious life is.
